  1. .... and exactly how much is this inaugural event going to be costing us tax payers? Why are you wasting time with this sort of folly when you should be working. I don't care if its your first day or last! Get back to work!

  2. Good point. Why is this being held at Strathmore and not at city or county-owned building with an auditorium? Or is Strathmore donating the building time for the good of the people?

  3. It appears that the comment is coming from the defeated camp. It is normal that every elected senior public official is formally inaugurated according to status of the office he/she is elected.
